, whether they actually believe there's a moral equivalency there or they don't and they're using it for political purposes. either way, whichever it is, this is not just bad domestic politics for the president, and it is and they know it, for a variety of reasons, including it takes him off the economy and divides him from democrats, which is a big problem on a range of issues, but i almost resist talking about this as a political issue. this is a national security crisis. both of these issues are. you have general petraeus getting involved in a domestic matter of the first amendment issue shows the extraordinary extent to which people in the military are -- men and women overseas think this is a big enough deal, and to have it to be brought into domestic politics and inflamed by republicans, again, out of principle, maybe, out of political purposes maybe, whatever the reason is really a national and international tragedy. and unfortunately the president, for a variety of reasons, is too weak on his own to deal with it. >> i think you're right. howard? >> well, sitting in the pre

-cio. thank you, karen, for joining us. what exactly is your effort, your strategy nationwide to get well, working people to vote democrat or to get involved politically, if you will? >> well, it's simple. we're about jobs. we're here to change this economy, to make sure it's working for working people and it's what we do all year around and now we're doing it for the election. working america is a union for folks who don't have a union on the job. we've got 3 million members and we talked to tens of thousands every single week about jobs, the economy, outsourcing, tax cuts for the wealthy and we know what matters to them. >> well it sounds like people should automatically vote labor or democrat if they're working people. they don't have a college degree and they don't have a -- let me show you this poll. it's basically right now shows republicans winning working class whites by 49-33, a 16-point spread. when you ask them about barack obama, it's just as bad. basically that's an overwhelming -- those without a college degree, 33%, just a third of working people like president obama. 59%,
